Tracer is a 2 year old corgi collie mix who came to us from of all places, California. This is a happy, bouncy boy who loves balls, toys, treats, petting, chasing squirrels, napping, eating, treats, toys, bouncing, spinning, etc. You get the idea. This 40 pound ball of fluffy love is a great dog for people who like corgis. He has the temperament of the corgi without the herding drive which is kind of funny considering that his other half is pretty clearly collie. Tracer needs a home that can manage an active dog who is knee high. He is currently living with two dogs in his foster home and is doing very well with it, although we still don't trust him with cats. He is wonderful with kids and would make a nice family dog. As an added bonus we are offering two free person training sessions for whoever adopts Tracer to ensure he settles into your familie's lifestyle.

Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process.
All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be.
Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:
1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).
2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.
3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.
4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.
Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.
Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.
All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training.
Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.
